    1. Would prefer this too. Also, it would great, if we can also get the original levels as well.
      Helps a lot while reading ahead using GT.

  1. For the levels of the profound realm, can you add the Chinese terms next to it? Also, there are ranks for spacial rings: Low->High, Silver/White->Yellow->Green->Blue
    There might be a rank higher than blue but it hasn’t been mentioned yet, at least not to my bootleg Chinese knowledge. A lot of Chinese xianxa’s usually has red or purple as the highest level in terms of colors so those colors will probably be mentioned eventually.

    Edit: Yup, highest tier ring is purple, mentioned in chapter 97.
    Of course, all this could probably just be bogus since my Chinese is elementary level. T.T

  2. What is the Chinese word/s that you translate to “heavy sword”?
    I’m not really familiar with the sword translations beyond jian -> sword and dao -> blade, so it would really help my visualisation.

      1. I missed the note. Sorry. I’m too excited to read the battle, 😛
        And perhaps, can you add some information regarding the buddha art? How much kg for each realm. I remember the weight of his sword but keep forgetting about the buddha’s weight. xD
        Thanks for the update.

  3. When it states that someone coughs up (or vomits up) blood, or they talk about a numb scalp, or swallowing their spit/saliva.. what do these terms effectively mean? I get that there is a large emotional underlying cause, but these types of reactions to situations aren’t commonly understood in the western world. Care to expand on how they are used/meant?


    1. Regarding the ‘cough up blood’ part I guess I means they are so shocked or outraged by the other party’s actions that they suffer mild internal bleeding. I think they use this exaggerated way to describe their responses to the actions of the other person. As for the ‘swallowing saliva’ part, even though I get what it means on context its harder to explain.

  4. Tidying up Yun Che’s current attributes a little:

    Physique: Evil God’s Profound Veins (Matchless Profound Veins), Dragon God’s Bloodline (Powerful physique), Dragon God Marrow (Immense recovery abilities, thicken dragon’s blood), Phoenix Bloodline (able to burn phoenix flames and cultivate World Ode of the Phoenix), Evil God’s Fire Seed (Fire invulnerability + complete understanding of fire laws), Evil God’s Water Seed (Water invulnerability + complete understanding of water laws)

  5. it’s chapter 643 already and no one troubled himself to update this? The 4 first stages of the phoenix profound arts, the golden crown arts, the profond handle, the yun family’s lightning profound art, the ice flame, hung’er, the elemental evil god seed – lightning etc..

  6. Ok, so I do this thing where I wait a few months and get back to reading some wuxia novels. That way I have a good amount of reading to lose myself in. It drives me insane having to check all the time for new chapter. I’m sure this is common among your readers.

    What drives me insane is how flawed this glossary is. I’m sorry, but as an avid fan of this novel, can I please request that you step up your game and give us a better name glossary than this?

    I can’t even find the Feng clan in here, or the pervy spoiled brat who tried to kill the MC in the profound arc. I’m not Chinese, these names are SO FRIGGIN HARD TO REMEMBER! Please, please please. Put all the names here so I don’t have to spend hours reminding myself who these characters are.


    1. You do realize that takes a lot of time on the translators hands when they’re already translating? If you’re willing to help the translators with the index then go ahead. But honestly bitching about it and doing nothing about it doesn’t help you either. Hell you could just open up the notepad on your compute and type in all the important sects/characters/skills/power ups etc.
